Marie Alice Jean Louis

Marie Alice Jean Louis is 49 years old with a husband and six children, including 9 year old Lelene who participates in the youth photo club through HAPI. Her family has no source of income. They can farm “when it rains” and can sometimes take out loans to help provide for the family’s needs. She didn’t know art at all before she became involved with HAPI, but now, through learning how to draw accurately and how to manage colors, she feels that she has become quite good and is excited to continue learning. She hopes that there can be more economic opportunities in the community and country so that every person can find work to support their families, and especially for her children, she hopes that there will be opportunities for them in the future. With the income that she will earn through HAPI she plans to put her children through school and would like to invest in some animals and a better garden.
